latest info about the patch
Well, it's been so long since I wrote about the garden, but luckily it hasn't been so long since I played in the garden! he hee!
I love my Veggie Garden. It's been absolutely wonderful this year. Everything seems to be coming together. Years of failures, and catastrophy, and finally it all seems to be happening. Or maybe I've just lowered my standards and decided to be happy with whatever I can harvest.
For whatever reason, this is the happiest I can recall being, and I have the joy of heading out to the patch when I get home from work, and collecting food to cook for tea.
Neighbours around us have problems with the grasshoppers, but we have so few! The Guinea Fowl I've spent the last few years buying up and feeding, feeding, feeding, are finally making themselves very useful. So far I've only seen a handful, but Rob tells me there's thousands up at the shed, 500 metres away. Yay!
Potatoes, huge potatoes, broad beans to die for. Lettuce, sweet lettuce, carrots just starting to get big enough to pick. Beetroot which really should have been harvested before this, cucumber which should start to bear soon. Beans to dry, beans to cook. Kale, which has just got through the catarpillar stage, and survived to pick again soon. Herbs everywhere, taking over. Onion. Amazing onion. (I've never grown big onions before) Spring onions, garlic, sunflower as tall as I am.
Just so happy! This is the life.
